Visit Morelia Mexico
Visit Morelia Mexico - Anyone who wants to know the soul of colonial Mexico, should visit Morelia, the capital city of the State of Michoacán and a World Heritage Site. More than one thousand colonial buildings and churches delight the millions of tourists who visit it. But Morelia is also a treasure of natural wonders.

Visit Morelia MexicoOne such treasure is the Morelos National Park, a protected natural area 18 miles (28 kilometers) from the International Airport in Morelia. Here, you can enjoy a beautiful forest with an excellent climate; perfect for hikes or horseback rides on the trails or simply relaxing.

In Pátzcuaro and on the island of Janitzio, 21 miles (34 kilometers) from Morelia, you can find the best white fish in the region, and you can see the Viejito (Old Man) Dance, obviously a delicious irony, because only the very young men can dance at its speed.

Twenty two miles (36 kilometers) from Morelia is Cuitzeo Lake, the second largest natural lake in Mexico and one of the six main wetlands in the country; important because of the large number of migratory birds it hosts, particularly water fowl species.

Also only some hours by car from the city (109 miles-175 kilometers- East) there is a place of an enormous attraction, the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve. Created to protect the wintering habitat of this beautiful insect, the Biosphere Reserve became a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in 2008.

With its vivid orange and black markings, the Monarch Butterfly is one of the most readily recognized and beloved insects in North America. Around 250 million Monarchs migrate for over 2,000 miles (3,200 kilometers) during August-October, flying from Canada and the United States to spend the winter in this reserve. The sanctuaries of this reserve,however, are only open to tourists from the third week in November through March, when the butterflies begin their return north.

This winter, there are plans to tag as many wintering butterflies as possible using very light self-stick tracers as not to impede their flight. The purpose of this is to determine the butterflies exact migration route as they fly back to Canada and the United States in the spring. So, if your idea of a good time is to gaze admiringly at the beauties of the nature, the outskirts of Morelia is for you.
